The Hooc solution

Efficient remote access simplifies the integration of complex systems. For this reason, VPN connections to remote networks and control systems (PLC, HMI, KNX, etc.) are today a s tandard in the fields of industrial and building technology.

The HOOC technology offers a transparent transport layer and establishes a VPN connection to remote systems for users and applications.

System integrators and manufacturers currently face the following challenges:

  • Ensuring secure access methods and their supervision
  • Granting dedicated and temporary access rights
  • Documentation and management of access rights
  • No public IP, no changes to firewalls and routers, no port-forwarding needed

To master all these challenges, HOOC offers secure and surprisingly simple solutions for engineers, managers and users.

The functional principle

The HOOC Gateway establishes an encrypted connection to the HOOC Cloud terminates in a virtual and fully isolated network hub. When logging into the HOOC Cloud, every user is assigned specific access rights. Thanks to the HOOC App, users can now establish a VPN tunnel from their end device to the remote network and be on-site with just a click. Also using its scalable platform capabilities the HOOC Solution offers a series of innovative services, which all work according to the same principle.
